Introduction to IPAT Equation for Environmental Impact

The IPAT equation (Impact = Population × Affluence × Technology) is a formula used in environmental science to measure human impact on the environment. The equation represents the impact (I) as a function of population (P), affluence (A), and technology (T). The equation suggests that human impact on the environment is related to population size, level of affluence (measured by consumption per capita), and the environmental impact of technology.

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The numbers should be greater than or equal to zero.


This formula provides a method for understanding the complex relationships between human activities and their impact on the environment, including factors such as population growth, consumption patterns, and technological development.
